Item details

Premium Clear Picture Framing Acrylic Sheet. .118" (1/8") (3mm) Glass Replacement. Plexiglas.

This is the very best Picture Framing Acrylic available. It is manufactured to a higher standard than regular acrylic or Plexiglas.

Why Do I Recommend Acrylic for your frames?

Most frames sold on Etsy use glass, so why do I use acrylic? There are several reasons.

1. Its half the weight of glass.
2. If you drop your frame, the acrylic won't damage your art because it won't break.
3. The acrylic won't break during shipping. Shippers don't insure for glass breakage during shipping.
4. It enhances clarity. Although glass appears clear, it can actually have a green tint to it because of the iron content, which can reduce the light level and alter the look of the artwork. Acrylic sheets are more optically pure and thus provide a clearer view.
5. It allows more light through. Up to 92% of visible light is transmitted through acrylic. Mineral glass transmits 80-90%, depending on type of glass and manufacturer.

How to measure.
If you have the glass you are replacing, measure it and order the same size. If you don't, measure the inside of the back of the frame. Most frames are made with a 1/8" allowance so a typical 8x10 frame will measure 8 1/8" x 10 1/8". Take your measure and subtract 1/8" from it and that will be the size of acrylic you order.

Your acrylic is shipping with the protective mask in place. The mask peels off easily.
